in new york, washington d.c., and shanksville, pennsylvania. was it a high point or a low point for media coverage? i mean, it really was the story of the decade, wasn't it? >> well, at that point i was working at the new york times, which won i think seven pulitzers for the coverage we did, lead up to that horrific event. i think it was an amazing period for news, jon, i think that everybody finally caught up with the story of the formation of militants groups like al-qaeda, the names that we now take for granted that we're seeing all over the world, we began to understand that they were really up to, and it was a moment of incredible challenge for the media and i think they rose pretty well to it at the beginning. >> jon: i remember the feeling of unity that came out of those attacks and it lasted a while. >> yeah. >> jon: it seems to be gone now. >> it does indeed. i agree with everything that judy said. i think that it's important to remember that the media had ample opportunities to cover the story, to connect the dots before 9/11. i interviewed tom fenton, then just retired from c

will come to washington tomorrow, his first trip, to meet with the massachusetts delegation. he'll also spend some time with senator john mccain who was one of his earliest supporters, but ooh a fascinating story and after his event and his news conference in boston, we were retracing key steps with his campaign and they understand it has fundamentally changed the health care debate in washington, but what they say the fundamental issue in massachusetts was disaffection, the same factors that contributed to the president's big victory in 2008, frustration about the economy, high unemployment and bailouts on wall street, high spending and a couple of key quick points. scott brown, the republican used john kennedy, an ad where john kennedy is talking about cutting taxes in the 1960s. it started with plaque and white john kennedy and it came to scott brown in color finishing the quote, saying that's what i want to do, restoring the kennedy, economic philosophy and they say don't underestimate the christmas day attempted bombing of the u.s. jetliner. they say after that, scott brown. he's a

from the "washington post," and kaiser and harvard that in fact say voters did not believe they were sending a message on health care specifically. but look what they did, not what they say. i agree with you, this is clearly, voters understood that they were throwing an enormous monkey wrench in the prospects of health care reform. what the president is doing is -- and which they're already moving in this direction before massachusetts, it was very clear talking to david axelrod about ten days ago, they were focusing more on this election of a contrast, not a referendum. what they've got now is a situation in which there is an enormous well of populist discontent about the direction of the country. republicans have ha great success of channeling it to washington in general, toward the democrats in particular. it's clear the white house wants to shift that focus back toward the financial institutions and other -- >> but are people angry at wall street, big money or big government? >> they're angry at both. and they're angry at government largely because of the belief that all of the a
of our pollsters put it, the message is "we hate what's going on in washington." chuck todd joins us at the top of the show. >>> plus, i love this story -- watergate. federal marshals have arrested a group of conservative activists in new orleans for allegedly attempting to wiretap the offices of democratic senator mary landrieu. the leader of those arrested, james o'keefe was the same conservative activist who became a right-wing hero for imitating a pimp at various a.c.o.r.n. offices. he together with three others were taken into custody after being caught trying to bug the offices of senator landrieu, a moderate democratic lawmaker. they had represented themselves as telephone repairmen. is this the equivalent of a third rate burglary or the start of something big? >>> also, how vulnerable is senator john mccain to a challenge from the right? former congressman and radio talk show host j.d. hayworth calls mccain a moderate -- that's a bad word by him. and he's going for that seat. he'll be here on "hardball." >>> john mccain isn't the only republican in trouble. will the thunder o

the massachusetts election people in washington were all in a tizzy. trying to figure out what this means for health reform. republicans and democrats. what does it mean for obama. is he weakened, is he -- how is he going to survive this. but i want you to understand, this is not about me. [ applause ] this is not about me. this is about you. i know there are some folks who think, you know, if obama loses, we win. but you know what? i think that i win when you win. >> wow. chuck todd, let me ask you about that. this president is an incumbent president, runs the government, heads the state. he is now acting like he's running for president. can he turn around and ride that surf board of public anger in the direction he wants to go? or is he simply back pedaling if he gets on there and has to pretend he's a critic of government when in fact he's leading it? will it work, will it be good politics, but more importantly will it work? will it get done by posturing as a critic of the way things are? >> well, look, it's clear what they decided they believe the message out of tuesday was
if it is the president or washington, d.c. and barack obama was not enough to deal with an otherwise broken system. joining us stephen boukadis and greg west. i've only got a second. greg, if there is one thing we can answer your question, my question is where is the beef? if the president was going to show you where the beef is how would he show you the beef? >> he would show me, i work with small and mid size businesses. they need clarity on what is happening with taxes, with health care and they need access to capital. if he could answer the question of so what after his speech that would be a fantastic speech for me. >> and stephen same question. where is the beef? >> sure. well, i would say the beef is sticking to his independence, staying away from the two-party political system. he engaged in partyism. he was independent and we would like to keep him independent and have him attend to our needs. >> gentlemen, enjoy the speech. we know he can give a heck of a speak. we are wondering if he can change washington, d.c. or update this country. i appreciate your time. that does it for us. i'm dyl
